Will was previously finished by the Ilemist Team with all majors in less than 3 months.  Mahalo Julie Desy and Team Ilemist for the expert handling of Will to his CH title.


Mahalo to Jan Ibaraki of Starmist Shelties who handled Will exclusively to his Grand Championship title with all majors to finish and a Group 1 along the way & recently to Pam Strametz of Hy-Verta Shelties who trained Will and added another couple of Group 1 titles to his accomplishments!  What fantastic teams and wonderful friends!


Will is standing at stud to approved bitches; he is a natural breeder, therefore, a brucellosis and vaginal culture prior to breeding is required as well as  proof of current vaccinations and appropriate tests.    Chilled semen is available.
